Description

An out of bounds write was discovered in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1660)

It was discovered that Blink assumes that a frame which passes same-origin checks is local in some cases. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1661)

A use-after-free was discovered in the V8 bindings in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1663)

It was discovered that the JSGenericLowering class in V8 mishandles comparison operators. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1665)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1666)

It was discovered that the TreeScope::adoptIfNeeded function in Blink does not prevent script execution during node-adoption operations. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1667)

It was discovered that the forEachForBinding in the V8 bindings in Blink uses an improper creation context. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1668)

A buffer overflow was discovered in V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1669)

A race condition was discovered in ResourceDispatcherHostImpl in Chromium. An attacker could potentially exploit this to make arbitrary HTTP requests. (CVE-2016-1670).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
